They said it

“If you don’t make [lower-resolution mapping data] publicly
available, there will be people with their cars and GPS
devices, driving around with their laptops .. They will be
cataloguing every lane, and enjoying it, driving 4×4s behind
your farm at the dead of night. There will, if necessary, be a
grass-roots remapping.” — Tim Berners-Lee

“You could have a community capability where you
took the GPS data of people driving around and started
to see, oh, there’s a new road that we don’t have, a new
route .. And so that data eventually should just come
from the community with the right software
infrastructure.” — Bill Gates
